2013 NAIAS: Toyota Corolla Furia Concept Makes Official World Debut
Another first world appearance at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit made the Toyota Corolla Furia Concept. The compact sedan concept has the styling cues of the next-generation Corolla and to be more precise it builds on the brand's product development priority to deliver more dramatic, expressively designed vehicles.
As a matter of fact the new Toyota concept is created around a theme of "Iconic Dynamism". The latter stands for the utilization of pure and simple surface elements and has the aim to make a confident, decisive and recognizable appearance.
In addition, the Furia Concept is a provocative and dynamic interpretation of a compact sedan which displays a more stable, athletic stance given that it is equipped with 19-inch allow wheels pushed to the vehicle's corners with short overhangs. This of course only emphasizes the long wheelbase of the car.
Some of the highlights in the design of the Corolla Furia design include a swept windshield, with a sloped roofline and pronounced fender flares. The front fascia is aggressively styled with a blacked-out grille treatment and sculpted front LED headlamps.
At the rear one can see the rear composite LED taillight assemblies which add a sense of advanced technology. More importantly, carbon fiber accents can be seen literally everywhere: from the wheel wells, through the rocker panels, to the rear valance. The latter features includes ornate metal exhaust outlet surrounds to add a sense of modern athleticism.
